When creating a wrestler, you can make people such as Ric Flair, Hall, Nash and others and the announcer will actually say their names.
Increase SmackDown meter:
During a match, you can quickly increase your Smackdown Meter until it is full, by pressing Taunt. If your SmackDown meter is almost empty, you will have to repeat this a few times. After every taunt, you will see your meter grow a percentage until it is full. Note: When performing a taunt, it leaves you open for your opponent to attack. This is best performed while they are either groggy or on the opposite side of the arena.
Skip matches in career mode:
When you are in a match in career mode, select "End Match" and you can then go on to the next arena without fighting that match.
